The displays were very well set up and lit which made for a good photo opportunity.
The moving sidewalk through the tube was a good experience. Not as large as I expected though.

At first I was not overwelmed with the tanks of fish, but at the end there is one huge tank which houses sharks, sting rays etc, It is like you are in a bubble tunnel and you are standing on a slow moving sidewalk that takes you around.

It was interesting to see different types of fish and sharks.The Aquarium is massive which has a food court,submarine etc in there. You can buy a picture with your family or friends with a statue of a dolphin.It is about 20€ for adults ticket and 15€ for a child's ticket which it is not bad.

The Aquarium is located at the Port Vell region which is next to the marina. It is 20 euros for an adult and 15 euros for a child, however we printed out the voucher which is on the official Aquarium website for 2 euros off for each person, so saved 4 euros! This voucher can be used for up to 4 people for a maximum 8 euros discount.

When you enter the Aquarium, you have the opportunity to have your picture taken with a large shark model and can then purchase the picture if you choose for 8 euros when you leave the Aquarium. This is a nice addition to the visit, and you are under no obligation to purchase the picture! (No pressure by staff at all!)

The Aquarium is divided into 3 sections;

Section 1 is a series of tanks with different types of fish including tropical fish (Finding Nemo tank!) and Sea Horses. At each tank there is a map showing where all fish can be found in the wild & interesting information about the species.

Section 2 is the underwater walkway which has a conveyor belt that you can stand on and be moved underneath a water tunnel with Sharks and Stingrays swimming above your head. Excellent photo opportunities here, however do not use flash photography as it can harm the fish! This is a very enjoyable experience, as you can get 'up close' to the Sharks and other weird and wonderful fish!

Section 3 has other fish tanks, interactive screens, an indoor play park and Penguins! Make sure you go inside the giant whale - here you can see jellyfish in ultraviolet tanks.

On leaving the Aquarium there is of course a large gift shop. There are some great souvenirs to purchase and of course you can purchase you welcome photo which we did!

A great afternoon out - we spent around an hour and a half in the Aquarium, however if you have children with you, you could easily spend the full afternoon!
